    Okay, you must be in Larimer County. :)

    The best pieces of advice I got from DC about carrying were these:

    1. Get a GOOD holster
    2. Get a GOOD belt.

    My summer attire is shorts and a t-shirt, almost all the time. I carry a Colt CCO 1911 (commander slide, officer frame), and it's a good sized gun. Without a GREAT holster and a GREAT belt, I wouldn't be able to pull off carrying that gun in that attire. I went with a UBG Striker IWB holster (95% of the time) and a Rick Waltner belt. Both are reasonably priced and superb quality.

    I carry my 1911 at about 3:30, and keep my wallet in my back right pocket with absolutely no issues whatsoever.

    And welcome from Lakewood, Colorado!
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    Thanks for the info, I am in El Paso county. Planning on carring a kimber 1911, I need to check out more holsters and belts thanks for the recommendations.

    The recommendations and other info is the reason I am glad I found this site.
